-Morpheus consists of: +Morpheus ​is a self-contained application. Internally, it consists of two stand-alone executables
-  * Simulator called ​''​morpheus''​ +  * ''​morpheus''​: the simulator ​ 
-  * Graphical user interface (GUI) called ​''​morpheus-gui''​+  * ''​morpheus-gui''​: the graphical user interface (GUI) 
  
-Internally, ​these stand-alone applications ​are linked by the exchange of XML and XSD files:+The communication between ​these stand-alone applications ​is through ​XML and XSD files:
   * The GUI reads an XML Schema description (XSD) file that specifies rules for valid XML models.   * The GUI reads an XML Schema description (XSD) file that specifies rules for valid XML models.
   * The GUI start a simulation job by executing ''​morpheus''​ with a generated XML model as argument.   * The GUI start a simulation job by executing ''​morpheus''​ with a generated XML model as argument.
  
-The simulator ''​morpheus''​ can also be used as stand-alone program from the command line. +Note that both executable can also be used as stand-alone programs. ​The simulator ''​morpheus''​ can also be used as stand-alone program from the command line. And ''​morpheus-gui''​ may be used to control remote computing resources.
